Twenty-eight CubeSats are set to launch aboard a Minotaur I rocket from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on November 19, 2013 as part of the ORS-3 mission. Eleven of the CubeSat payloads have been provided through NASA's Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa-4) program. Below is information about some of the CubeSats including tracking information and links to developers' websites. See Spaceflight Now's launch status page for more information.
